    This is what "Practice" mode can be used for.

    Here is what Shoe had posted some time ago with regards to the same sort of question...

    WGTdbloshoe:

    With the Mulligan feature that was introduced, this is not a high priority.  You can practice your putts, pitches, chips, or any other shot in any stroke play practice round.  This also gives you a better way of trying out different shots from different course conditions.

     

    - WGTdbloshoe

    Now mind you, using the Mulligan feature takes hits off your ball. So beware.

     

    Happy Hitting

    BPB #4. Set up a practice round and get to that hole. The backside of the green is fairway and the perfect place to practice all 3 of those shots. The practice mode gets you mulligans and less than a sleeve of balls gets you honed in.  :-)

    I would love to see a bunker practice area added. It’s the one shot that we practice the least, and needs to be practiced the most. In real life, when I go to the range, I always practice in the sand, and on the green

    A practice range has been suggested about 2,384 times but I don't think it will appear.  Unless it provides enough revenue to offset the mulligan ball penalty - and even then I doubt it would happen.

    While not ideal, using the free white rock for practice rounds where the mulligan is employed around the greens and from bunkers, cuts costs to zero. Yes, putting spin on the free ball is different than the spin put on higher level balls, but the re-hits will be become the base for learning the pitch vs. the chip as well as bunker play.

    Yup - Some have great memories and some do like I do - record a lot of what I try during play and the results!  I try to condense that down into some simpler notes and guidance overall and for specific courses and holes!

    But I still practice a lot and do a lot of mapping!
